During an insightful discussion with The Interview World at the 3rd NAREDCO Mahi Convention, Nitin Mittal, Chairman of Knest, provided valuable insights into Knest’s construction technology, particularly focusing on aluminium formwork and its increasing market demand. He emphasized the role of this technology in accelerating the construction of high-rise buildings. Here are the pivotal points highlighted in his interview.

Q: Could you shed light on the key activities and operations of Knest?

A: We are at the vanguard of technology as a premier tech firm, pioneering state-of-the-art aluminium formwork systems in construction. Aluminium formwork is indispensable for erecting soaring skyscrapers, enabling us to scale unprecedented heights with finesse.

India, with a hefty 17% share of the world’s population yet confined to a mere 3% of the landmass, faces a daunting predicament. The imperative solution lies in towering structures—70, 80, even 100 floors high—that not only accommodate our populace but also preserve precious ground-level space for verdant parks and lush greenery. Skyscrapers epitomize the optimal strategy for balancing urban growth with environmental sustainability as well.

Aluminium formwork also stands as the linchpin in realizing this vision, and we proudly claim the mantle of the globe’s foremost manufacturer in this domain. Committed ardently to the ‘Make in India’ ethos, we continue to spearhead technological innovation, championing the cause of progress and sustainability on home soil.

Q: Do you export your products as well?

A: We vigorously export and aid all developing nations in fostering sustainable real estate expansion, concurrently addressing their unique challenges.

Q: What is the current demand and market acceptability for your products in the Indian market, particularly concerning high-rise buildings?

A: Acceptance poses no challenge whatsoever. We have garnered collaboration from eminent developers such as Adani, Tata Group, Shapoorji Pallonji Group, L&T Construction, DLF, Prestige, Brigade, and Sobha. Their involvement underscores the indispensability of this technology in high-rise construction.

Demand, too, is not a quandary at present. There exists an incessant and universal demand for products across all temporal and spatial dimensions. The crux of the matter lies in the product’s relevance to industry standards. Furthermore, it fundamentally rests upon a paradigm shift in our own mindset.

Q: How are Indians’ changing perceptions of high-rise buildings influenced by concerns over earthquake safety? What are your thoughts on this shift in mindset?

A: Aluminium formwork confers a decisive advantage: steel is deployed not just for columns but also for walls, ensuring a finely calibrated structure. This equitable allocation of steel bolsters its stability, notably in seismic zones, outshining other construction methodologies.

Furthermore, while it may be novel in India, aluminium formwork has been extensively leveraged in China for erecting skyscrapers. In Singapore, this avant-garde technology reigns supreme in the construction of all contemporary high-rise edifices.

Q: How earthquake-resistant are these buildings, and to what extent are they considered safe?

A: RCC consultants prioritize earthquake-resistant structures and meticulously select steel frameworks. Our role lies not in design but in the meticulous construction process. We transform the architect’s and builder’s aspirations into tangible realities, including significant initiatives like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

This technology underpins all housing projects, ensuring homes for every citizen. Dreaming of building numerous houses is one thing; executing that vision is quite another. We are steadfast in our commitment to flawless execution, raising the bar with every project we undertake.
